Uganda Cranes head coach Milutin Sredojevic tested his players against a very good team ahead of Friday’s opening Group E match with Ghana in the 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia campaign.
The Uganda Cranes who are returning to the AFCON Finals for the first time since 1978, played an international friendly match with Togo at the Kegue stadium in Lome.
The Cranes conceded a first half goal but still pushed on gallantly with hope of levelling the score.
Togo who edged Uganda 1-0 in 2014 at the same stadium during the 2015 AFCON Campaign, emerged winners again with the same score line.
Uganda Cranes will remain in Lome until Thursday morning when they travel to Tamale ahead of Friday match with Ghana.

Salim Jamal (GK), Nicholas Wadada, Godfrey Walusimbi, Murshid Juuko, Isaac Isinde, Denis Iguma, Hassan Wasswa, Khalid Aucho, Kizito Luwagga, Faruku Miya, Geoffrey Massa (Capt).
